Each April, volunteers gather at Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve to celebrate Earth Day by working on the Preserve grounds. This year, volunteers helped weed out invasive plants like garlic mustard, improved the trails, and worked in the nursery. All of our terrific volunteers share a love of nature and native plants and a commitment to preserving them. Many of them continue to volunteer throughout the year in order to support the Preserve and its mission to lead people to a greater appreciation of native plants, to an understanding of their importance to all life, and to a commitment to the preservation of a healthy and diverse natural world.
